Today is a very important day for the reign of Albion because all the people will celebrate the 18th birthday, which would be 180 years for the marine population, of their prince. The King has organized a huge party to which kings and princes of other sea kingdoms will also be invited.
Right now Aster, the king of this empire, is looking for his son with a smile on his face. He knocks on his room but, hearing no answer, he opens the door uninvited. He looks around and, not seeing him, he knows very well that he has gone to explore the surroundings like he always does each day. He sighs in amusement and returns to the throne room. That child is always so curious... he thinks with an amused grin.
"Malik" calls his trusty knight, who arrives immediately. If a human saw him, he would think that he has 25 years old but the sirens and the merfolk live longer than them Malik is almost 250 years old. He's ten years older than Aster and his bulky tail is a beautiful cobalt blue that immediately catches the eyes of others. It's not the greatest tail of the realm, but you can say that it is among the most beautiful.
"Did you call me, your Majesty?" he asks curious what orders his best friend will give him.
"Yes! I would like you to go and see where my son is and, when you find him, bring him back in two hours, please?!" the king orders him gently. Malik nods with a grin on his face and swims away.
Oh sorry... I immediately started to tell you the story and I did not tell you the history of this planet... Now I do it very quickly, dear!
Many centuries ago humans and mermaids cohabited on this planet, the name of this world is Luviaxiù, peacefully, in fact, many times sirens went to visit humans on their land. And now you wonder how they fall apart like this, right?! I could tell you it was because of a love affair that ended tragically. Let me explain more to you...
First, to better understand this, I would like to illustrate that every living being had its soulmate and, if he/she/they isn't/aren't with this one, he/she/they might feel very ill. However, knowing that mermaids live longer than humans, you can say that they can have more than one mate in their life.
Here is the background!
A couple of lovers went to visit the land to find a friend. That week there was a city festival where they had to stay so they wanted to have a lot of fun with their buddy. On the first day, they had a lot of fun and, when they go to sleep, they have a smile on their faces. Instead, on the second day they clash with a boy who immediately falls in love with his husband. The guy, who is one of the princes of this kingdom, in the following days begins to stalk the couple and they, feeling that they are being followed, begin to be afraid of this.
After a few days, the prince goes to a sorcerer to make a love potion and one to make a person forget important memories of his life. The next day, after collecting the two elixirs, he asks the guards to kidnap the couple so they do it with a little sadness for their fate. When they arrive at a villa, the couple is divided one is taken to the room where the prince is and he makes him drink the potions, instead the other is carried to the basement where he gets tortured. When he returns to the sea, he's in a bad state and, after a few days, he begins to tell what happened to his kind.
And that’s how the sirens started to fear humans. Then, now, we can continue to see the story.
At that precise moment, ten miles from the kingdom, you can see three 'people' swimming and look for relics.
The person who stands out most in this triplet is a merfolk smiling at another mermaid and a dolphin laughing together. His appearance is very fascinating, when he passes, all people turn to look at him in amazement. He looks very much like his majesty he has the same hair color as his dad which is pearl white, his eyes are violet and his build looks like that of a female. He’s got nice curves even though he’s got unnoticeable abs. The only thing that differentiates them is the color of their tail. The king has two different shades that are fire red and night blue, while the prince has the rainbow as a color and, thanks to this, is the most unique and beautiful tail of the kingdom.
As I was saying before, these three characters are searching for strange relics inside a sunken ship. Everyone is in a separate room to see if they can find something unique.
Our protagonist is inside a bedroom and, luckily, he finds an old journal hidden under the bed. He tries to open it but, at that precise moment, one of his friends calls him back and then he puts it inside his bag. I'll read this tonight! considers with an excited smile.
"Theorlien" Naorea, the dauphin, calls him again so he starts swimming fast in the direction his friend called him. When he gets there, he sees a compartment full of shiny treasures.
"Look how many beautiful treasures we found, Theo!" Zhao, the other merfolk, exclaims enthusiastically. Theorlien widens his eyes in astonishment and then nods smiling in ecstasy.
The three friends begin to rummage through things excited to have discovered such a great treasure. Theo, while watching the other two, notices a beautiful uranium necklace with a sparkling pearl at the end. How much do I want to take it... considers. But if I do it, then I’ll have to take my father’s scolding, so I better leave this here... keep thinking. They keep digging around until they hear a strong noise. They stop suddenly and, hearing the noises approaching, they turn around swallowing in fear. They see a shadow approaching and, after a few seconds, they sigh of relief seeing that the figure is Malik, the trusted guard of the King.
"I knew you were here!" he starts the speech "I came to get you, Theorlien, because your father kindly ordered me to take you back to the palace so you can get ready for the party" continues with a paternal smile.
"All right, Mal... Now we’re coming!" Theo replies smiling back at him, then he turns to see a last time, for that day, all the treasures focusing to look at the necklace.
"We can go, now!" Zhao exclaims, taking Theo by the hand and dragging him out of the ship following the other two. When they leave, they stop to say goodbye to Naorea, who has to return to her home to get ready for her best friend’s party.
"Goodbye, guys! See you tonight for the mega party" she says and then makes her sound very happy for Theo. The other three greet her with warm smiles on their faces. They follow her with their eyes until she becomes a tiny dot and then they leave, too.
But they don't know that all that time, someone was watching them from his crystal globe, when she/he sees that the prince looks with interest at the pendant, he/she smiles tenderly.
"Perfect! I know what I need to take as a gift for him" he/she exclaims softly from Theorlien’s behavior but, when the other boy takes the prince’s hand, she/he gets very jealous. Take that hand away from my little prince! thinks angrily and pouts. Then, seeing her/his behavior, he/she chuckles at him/herself. After he/she sees the boys leave the ship, she/he comes out of his/her lair and goes to get the necklace. It takes little time so she/he looks better in the treasures and finds a ring, it has the same material as the pendant, with a diamond-shaped goldfish on it. I found another gift he might like. he/she considers so she/he begins to grin. Then he/she returns to her/his cave to pack the present for his/her little prince.
Author: I finally finished writing the first chapter! I hope you enjoy it!🤗
In the next chapter, do you want me to write better the story of the past? Or do you want to see how the party goes? Who do you think is the person who went out at the end? Will he/she be a threat or not? Will she/he be important in the development of the book?
